>> as they returned to washington this week, some lawmakers from both parties were talking about compromise to avoid the january fiscal cliff, showing a willingness to put spending cuts and revenues on the negotiating table. the white house warned that the uncertainty of potential tax hikes for middle-class taxpayers could hurt consumer confidence during the holiday shopping session. that could have a big effect on the economy. the washington post writes that the white house is ratcheting up pressure to avoid the fiscal cliff. on c-span tonight, we will bring you some of the house and senate debate from august of 2011, when congress passed the budget control act that triggered cuts to take effect on january 1. we will also hear from president obama, who signed the deficit reduction measure into law, part of the deal to raise the debt ceiling. first, senate majority leader harry reid and republican majority leader mitch mcconnell will talk on the senate floor about the january fiscal deadline. >> since our country voted to return president obama to the white house, i have spoken o

-- [laughter] but the title is "miracle at philadelphia." and that is not wrong. washington, of course, was the presiding officer of the convention. the american constitution was by accident and design. the delegates -- the first month, would there be a president, would be a council, with the president have an absolute veto? at the end of the month, none of these things for resolved. at some points, at the delegates would say, the 18th century equivalent of we are out of fear. washington would say, gentlemen, please stay. you did not walk out on the general. and stay for three months and finish the document. in historygreat if's is what if jefferson had been at philadelphia? it is interesting that two of america's greatest thinkers john adams and thomas jefferson were not at philadelphia. adams was the american minister to the court of st. james. jefferson the american minister to paris. jefferson made a tremendous contribution. he sent to his friend madison over 200 bucks -- books on political thought, political history. my surmise is that some of those books must have been about the

on it. i think the washington post made some comment on this ad, and said it was not "pants on fire." there was accuracy in the advertisement. i think i am going to leave it at that. host: on the republican line, theresa is waiting. caller: good morning, and thank you. i am pleased to have the opportunity to speak some of the things i would like to say. i hope that with the ground game with the republicans and in ohio that the people who are telling the people there to do their own research before they pull the lever. let them talk to people who go to doctors and things of that nature. they do not go just once in a while. they go quite frequently. when a doctor says to you, instead of "have a nice day," "stay healthy, , because i might not be able to take care of you," that is important to a senior citizen. on education, people need to really dig and find out what the educational programs are all about. it is more money and more money. it is all for the unions. if there were things going on in the school that the parents could see, instead of being pushed aside because the governmen
against human desire. back cannot work. i am a student at george washington university. there is a large push from the and the price of a community about legalization of marijuana. -- from the undergraduate timidity about legislation and marijuana. could this lead to a nationwide reform movement? >> it is different. i presume the undergraduate movement at gwi is people who want to get something. temperance movement was to deny somebody else opportunity to get something. the women's movement that was the firast mass move apart -- movement for prohibition was very noble. women were victimized by prohibition in horrible ways. women have no voting rights, the bourse was a rarity. -- women had no voting rights, divorce was a rarity. it was an effort to free the family, free women from this. it is hard to get my arms around comparison between that and an undergraduate desire for marijuana. >> most major changes in the country, from popular movements, some of them start on college campuses, some in other places. >> there is a meaningful parallel. it is generational. the same generation that is

[cheers and applause] elected, he will continue his war on coal and oil and natural will change course on energy, because to build jobs and help with prices at the pump, we need to achieve north american energy independence within eight years. [cheers and applause] reelected, he would continue to crush small business, and i mean this seriously. he is forcing unions on not want them. that will crush small business. i care about small business. i see small business as a way for people to fill their dreams.

, washington, just returned from afghanistan, they are now aligned with paycon. and in fact they are going to undergo a paycon sponsored exercise this year. they are engaged in lanning efforts for war plan security cooperation, bilateral, and multilateral exercises. they'll provide options for security force assistance, humanitarian assistance, disaster relief in the command area responsibility. these are just some of the things rear doing. i wanted to just quickly fill those out so you have an understanding where we are beginning to head. so in the end i think we are going from an army that was organized and trained over the last 10 years for iraq and afghanistan, one that's going to go to regional aligned forces and one in the future i believe will go to mission tailored forces. that will be tailored to specific missions and specific areas of the world, but also have the ability to sustain a campaign quality if it's needed, depending where it might be. again i want to reiterate our goal is that we'll have an army that provides capabilities for many missions and many speeds at many sizes
and the farm bill. "washington journal," live tuesday >> we are live for a discussion on the future of network news and how it is being shaped for the digital age with former nbc reporter, ted koppel. as you can see, they are seated. this event is hosted -- we expect this event to begin shortly. >> from the national press club in washington, d.c., this is the kalb report with martin kalb. [applause] >> hello and welcome to the national press club. i am marvin kalb. the conversation with ted koppel about democracy and the press. if i use the word twilight to suggest that network news, as we have known it, is on its way out and as something new is emerging. whether what is new will satisfy the urgent needs of our democracy cannot be noted at this time. let's hope that it will. without a free and occasionally rambunctious media, we will not be living in an open society. the free press and an open society are intimately linked, one dependent on the other. network news -- if network news is in its twilight, then perhaps our democracy is facing a turning point as well. i asked an old colleague and a
. >> janet. george washington university school of public health. there was a lot of discussion on women's issues. i am wondering if you can speak to the role of gender in the governing. we are seeing more candidates who are successful in their elections and one state's -- is entirely female. >> kelly ayote. when you have that kind of coalition and the democratic party and that remarkable picture of the congressional committee of all republican and not white men talking about contraception or ever was before the committee at the time, that is an image of perjury is exactly why republicans are having a hard time in connecting with female voters in that gender gap. >> romney did significantly improve among white women. not only did not college white women, but also the college white women. this is the first time the democrats have lost them since 1988. >> there is also of the marriage gap. if you are a married woman, you vote different in different ways. that is another thing the republican party is facing. there is new to an era where you bought your identity rather than your interest. >>
on a fundamental reform of entitlement that which all the establishment people of washington said are for -- but when republicans pass a budget that does it they say, though, where is the one with the tax increases? there are not interested in the fundamental reforms of entitlements but tax increases. the r's are holding. i talked to all the cheerful guys there and they are moving forward. remember, every time republicans have a bad election cycle -- 64, 1974, 1976, 1982, 1986, 1998, 2006, 2008 -- all sorts of helpful people come out and explain that the modern republican party should turn left. and when the republican party has not taken that cheerful but vice -- advice, they've done better. there is no sense of being spooked. people like a year before people -- in the before. there always advocate and, you should become liberal democrats, that would be a good idea. not the advice democrats can't make it a shellacking. it is not as credible. there is not a sense of panic. where i do think we have an intelligent rethinking going on -- and it is not even a shift so much as a change
there is a massive discount on washington. he cannot count on washington on a general philosophy, and they're not sitting there with bated breath saying are they going to -- that does not mean it is not serious, but it means they are not. their expectations are pretty darn low at the moment. >> based upon your experience in contrast, do you see an opportunity for tax reform in the next congress in terms of lining up the ducts and getting everything in place that something move during the very next upcoming contest? >> that is a really good question, and obviously it could be part of a grand bargain, because it could be the vehicle to provide some revenue as part of the overall solution, whatever ratio they are looking for in spending cuts as opposed to retina. the worry -- to revenue. the worry i would have, as i said a minute ago, when we did it in 1986 and it was revenue neutral, it was very hard to do. i mean, exceedingly hard to do, because you are taking on all the lobbies and all the interests that have gotten something in the code that helps them. bill bradley and i started with the
as part of the deal to avert the fiscal cliff. he spoke at the brookings institution in washington for about an hour. >> the afternoon. my name is glenn hutchins. i'm the vice chairman of perkins. >> there is no doubt that bob is an extraordinarily successful business executive. under his leadership, the bell units -- the value of perkins has increased. revenue has gone up. cash flow has gone up from -$800 million per year. he has taken them from the knees market in the united states and made it one of the most important global markets. those are very straightforward facts. he has a track record to be proud of. the market he has built however, is the reason why we have asked him to be here today. the nasdaq stock market has 32 companies around the world. lista great strength is to the world's most important technology companies and almost all important technology companies in modern america started out on the nasdaq. during my business and -- business career, nasdaq has been the venue for a successful growing company to get the capital to continue its growth. this is a point of wan

if we are focused on that and not our policies in washington. i hope this is the beginning of progress where we are able to come to agreement and reduce our deficit in a balanced way and we will deal with some of these long-term the impediments to growth. we will be focusing on making sure people are able to get ahead. i want to thank all of the leadership for coming. with that, we are going to get to work. there is one other point i want to make. my understanding is that tomorrow is speaker boehner's birthday. to those of you who want to wish him birthday -- we will not embarrass him with a cake. because we could blow out all of the candles that were needed. thank you. >> following their meeting with the president, house and senate leaders spoke briefly with reporters. >> we had a constructive meeting with the president to talk about america's fiscal problem. i outlined a framework that deals with reform of our tax code and reforming our spending. i believe the framework i have outlined is consistent with the president's call for a fair and balanced approach. to show our seriousness,
with "washington journal." to the american enterprise institute. the topic here, conservatives and immigration reform. [captioning performed by national captioning institute] [captions copyright national cable satellite corp. 2012] >> you know, there has been a tension at the heart of the conservative movement approach to immigration at least as long as i've followed politics and a lot longer than that. there are two influential camps in the conservative movement who have jockeyed for control to define the right approach to immigration policy. this is a crude generalization, but i think a fair one. on the one hand, there are economic libertarians who don't mind so much the presence of large numbers of immigrants in the united states illegally. they would also welcome much more legal immigration as well. we call this "the wall street journal" wing. on the other hand our social and law-and-order conservatives who are concerned with preserving culture and the maintenance of social order. they believe that large numbers of people in the united states in violation of american law is inherently prob

angeles washington bureau chief about polling numbers that make up of the electorate that came out on tuesday. >> mr. louder will answer all your questions about the make up of the electorate. i want to focus on party identification. the electorate was 38% democrats, republican 32% and independent or something else about 29%. is this now a democrats controlling -- being the majority of folks who come out? guest: yes and no. it's really important to make a distinction between party i.d. how people identify themselves when you ask which party do you belong to and vote behave yor. they're related things but they're different things. and there was a lot of confusion about that during the course of the campaign and a lot of arguments about polls because people were mixing up those two things. you've got a country that is very closely divided between democratic voters and republican voters. so a lot of republicans including a lot of republican pollsters thought that meant that the party i.d. should be pretty much equally divided. so when the polls kept coming out showing more democrats t
